It’s the final stop before AEW REVOLUTION!
Tonight’s AEW COLLISION was broadcast from the Propst Arena at Von Braun Center in Huntsville, AL!
It’s Saturday night and you know what that means! Saturday night’s alright for fighting!
Nigel McGuinness, Kevin Kelly and Tony Schiavone were the broadcast team for tonight’s event.
Tonight’s opening contest: The House of Black’s Buddy Matthews against…
Mark Briscoe attacked Matthews before Matthews’ scheduled opponent was introduced!
Mark pulled Buddy out of the ring and Buddy’s opponent left the ring. Briscoe and Matthews brawled at ringside. Mark set up a chair in the ring, used it as a launching pad, and dived onto Matthews on the arena floor, crashing through a table!
Mark Briscoe grabbed a steel spike. Briscoe aimed the spike at Matthews while Matthews begged him off. Brody King and Malakai Black sprinted to the ring to save Matthews from Briscoe’s attack. Mark Briscoe was taking on the entire House of Black. He cracked Brody in the back with a steel chair! Mark whipped the chair at Malakai’s head! Briscoe was about to use the spike on Malakai’s head when Buddy walloped Mark with a running kick to the head!
Mark Briscoe jumped off the top of the ramp and connected with a flying cross body press to Matthews. Briscoe grabbed the remote control to the pyro that was set up on the ramp, and as Buddy staggered backwards, Briscoe triggered the pyro!
Security grappled with Briscoe, preventing him from hitting the switch again. The House of Black retreated to the back, in total disbelief at Briscoe, who seemed out of his mind!
“He was trying to burn the face off Buddy Matthews!” said Nigel.

“The Virtuosa” Deonna Purrazzo made her way to the ring!
Storm: “Deonna, please, hasn’t thing gone far enough? Look at what we’ve become. Is this really what we trained for, Deonna Our friendship was destroyed. All just to win a match. Is it worth it? From the bottom of my heart, I love you, I do. I love your abilities, your determination, and I love that there is only room for one and as long as I shall live and breathe, it will never be you!”
Purrazzo: “Toni, I love you too. I love that you have your head so far up your own ass you’re going to lose the one thing that started this to begin with. I love that you have forgotten the most important detail about me. I am the best friend and the worst enemy!”
Storm: “Very well. Goodbye old friend.”
Toni Storm applied lip stick and then kissed the cheek of Deonna, and Deonna smacked Storm with a right punch! Deonna grounded and pounded Storm until Mariah May stepped into the ring and yanked Deonna by the hair, pulling her off the champ! Toni left the ring, with Luther helping her to the back.

Lexy Nair was backstage to interview Willow Nightingale, Kris Statlander, and Stokely Hathaway!

In the ring, Tony Schiavone interviewed Wardlow ahead of the All-Star 8-Man Scramble at REVOLUTION tomorrow!
Wardlow: “Looks like I finally got someone’s attention around here. Two years ago, I won the Face of the Revolution Ladder Match. One year ago, I choked out your king. This year finally I get my shot at the World championship after I beat all the other ‘all stars’ in the match. But who’s it going to be? Wardlow against ‘Hangman’ Adam Page? Doesn’t matter, I’ll slap his moustache off.
“Maybe it’ll be Wardlow versus Swerve. I’m going to kick the front door of Swerve’s house down. So, swerve back into your own lane and dance your ass to the back of the line. Or is it going to be Wardlow versus Samoa Joe? I am so sick of hearing you people chant ‘Joe! Joe! Joe!’ You know what? I hope it is you Joe, because everybody knows you’re in my spot! And this time I am going to finish the job. Not only am I going to take my spot, my title, I am going to beat you so bad that you’ll be forced to put on a headset and sit at that announce table where you belong.
“Tomorrow night I remind everyone that I am still the face of the revolution. I am the uncrowned king. Because this is no longer wrestling. This is war!”
Chris Jericho’s music began to play! Jericho stepped onto the ramp!
Jericho: “What exactly is it that you’re talking about? You mention Swerve, Hangman, and Samoa Joe, but you’re not fighting them tomorrow at Revolution. You’re in the All-Star Scramble, and I don’t know if you know me, I’m Chris Jericho. I’m not an ‘All-Star’. I’m one of the greatest to ever do this.
“And if you think you’re just going to pass over me and six of the greatest performers in AEW and worldwide, I’m going to give you some information. I am Chris Jericho. They call me ‘The Ocho’ because I am 8-time World champion, and more importantly, I am the first AEW World champion. So, the way that I see it, that’s Jericho 8, Wardlow 0, because you ain’t won s—t!
“So, before you disrespect me and say you’re going straight to the front of the line, I want to remind you that it’s been four years since I lost that title to Jon Moxley in one of the greatest matches in AEW. So tomorrow at Revolution, this isn’t just another match for me, it’s a chance for me to get back to being AEW World champion, because I know I’m good enough. Are you? Because you’re complaining so much about being overlooked and pushed aside. Did you ever think the reason people stopped chanting your name is because you just weren’t as good as you think you are, Mike.”
Wardlow: “You know what Chris? You’re absolutely right. Because I was this close to the top of the mountain. I could damn near reach it, and after Double or Nothing I show up to work just to take a step backwards. And then the next week, a step down from the mountain. And then a step backwards, and then a step down, and then a step backwards, and then a step down. And yeah Chris, it pissed me off, to the point that I let it eat me away. To the point where I let it ruin my personal life. I lost me.
“But after sitting at home for three months with no explanation and no phone call, I slowly started to remember who I am. And I did what I have done so many times in my life. I picked myself up off the floor, put myself back together, and come back here to remind everyone who I am. I am the biggest, baddest SOB to step foot in a wrestling ring. I don’t care how many titles you’ve won, and as I said a week ago, I am done eating your scraps. I’m right here. Come down here because I’d like to show you who the hell I am!”
Jericho: “If you want me to come down there, I’ll take the rocket and shove it up your ass in front of all these people!”
Jericho began to approach the ring when Powerhouse Hobbs ambushed Jericho from behind!
Hobbs pummeled Jericho on the ramp. Hobbs looked at Wardlow and taunted him! “One more day! Remember me!” said Hobbs.
Lexy Nair was backstage with Serena Deeb!
Deeb: “Not only am I undefeated, but I’m also unstoppable, putting on clinic after clinic here in AEW. Nobody has really challenged me in the ring here. To be honest I don’t think the competition that I have faced in the ring would know the difference between a wrist lock and a wristwatch. So, if you’re listening and watching and consider yourself one of the best, step into Deeb’s dojo. Step into my home turf and test yourself against the most elite wrestler because I’ll be here each week to show why I am the final boss!”
Private Party—Isiah Kassidy & Marq Quen
“The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels & Matt Sydal!
Daniels taunted Quen and then took him down with an arm drag. Daniels clobbered Quen with a clothesline from behind. Sydal tagged in and cleaned house on Private Party with devastating kicks. He followed up with a double hurracanrana. Sydal smashed Quen with an Air Raid Crash for a near fall.
Daniels delivered the Angels Wings on Quen, but Jeff Jarrett’s crew came down to the ring to distract the ref! Jay Lethal blasted Daniels with the Lethal Combination! Lethal grabbed Marq Quen and placed him on top of Daniels. The ref turned around and counted the pin, and Private Party were victorious.
Jeff Jarrett, Karen Jarrett, Sonjay Dutt, Satnam Singh, and Jay Lethal celebrated with Private Party after the match.
“Is this a new allegiance?” wondered Nigel.
Thunder Rosa vs. Cassandra Golden!
Thunder Rosa cracked Cassandra with a chop to the chest. Rosa dodged a splash and countered with a shotgun dropkick. Thunder Rosa followed up with a running dropkick. Thunder Rosa pounded Golden with a double stomp off the top rope. Thunder Rosa applied an arm bar and forced Golden to tap out!
